So I am trying to build my own parallel approval process, not using a

I had a Start, Mapping activity, single approval, action on deny, log on
success. Got that all mostly working. (Still issues, but I can move
forward still).

Now I add a branch between the Mapping activity and the Approval, then
stick in a second approval parallel to it.

Watching in the server.log file, I see it forward it to the branch, then
to the first approval, but it is not branching and sending it to the
second approval at the same time.

What do I have to do special to make that happen? Again, it feels like
it must be so obvious, but I am blind to it. The layout looks right. I
compare against the shipped templates and it looks the same...
